Media Car in action, I haven't decided which front end I like best yet.
The interweb! Thanks to this thread!
For me, this is the coolest part of this whole project. I'm listening to my internet radio station IN MY CAR!!! It's not quite ready for driving while listening, it buffers a lot, but it works!! AM/FM is dead.
Like I was saying, I have to disconnect to get rid of the noises. So I mapped a key on the Zaurus keyboard to F8 (menu for VNC), then I hit 'exit'. It's actually kind of difficult to do while driving.
Which brings me back to pdaXrom.
I know what you're thinking, Xumbi, that's cool, but can it play movies/videos? The answer is yes! Sort of... The VNC connection is way too slow to play videos, so I have to mount the computer's hard drive on my Zaurus, and play them over the networked USB connection. Another drawback is the videos have to be encoded in 320x240. The Zaurus isn't quite fast enough for 640x480 videos. I wrote a script that resizes the resolution automatically.
Call for Help!
I'm not sure why I'd want to, but I can play music over the USB connection with XMMS.
That's all I have for now. Maybe I'll try to get some night shots later...
